Trusted service providers for over 60 years
Since 1956, PPSPower has been a trusted supplier of back-up power solutions. Previously trading as Powerplant Services and the Progress Group, in 2014 the two companies came together to form PPSPower. The company now operates a full nationwide service, with dedicated generator and UPS departments and a team of nationally deployed engineers based across England and Wales, with a dedicated depot in Scotland.
The company benefits from being part of a wider group of power solutions companies; its sister company YorPower distributes generators worldwide, while control and automation company Glenace and generator sales company Generator Warehouse further complement and strengthen the service offering.
The firm holds stocks at its headquarters in Yorkshire as well as at depots across the UK and its engineers utilise original equipment, manufacturer’s parts and stocks wherever appropriate.
PPSPower is an approved Riello UPS distributor although its team also works on a variety of other makes and models as well.
